👑 Kinging in the rain ☔️
7 GoodGymers made their way 8.0km to help their local community in York.
- Monday, 8th of May 2023
☔️ 7 incredibly dedicated GoodGymmers gathered on a rainy (coronation) bank holiday Monday evening for this evening’s group run. We were thrilled to welcome Sheila for her first group room and Dan for his first since 2019 👋
🌳 I was also able to share some incredibly exciting news about a Tiny Forest that we’re hoping to get started soon, having just had a meeting about it.
📜 Anyway, on to the task (literally) in hand, which was leafletting for the Community Furniture Store. They’d left an incredibly hefty box of leaflets for us to distribute to various studenty locations across the city 👩🎓👨🎓
3️⃣ We split into three groups:
🎒 Abigail, Martin and Sheila covered the city centre and walked an impressive almost 4 miles, with somewhat mixed luck as some accommodation blocks (apparently the fancier ones) declined their kind offer of leaflets. Abigail and Sheila managed to offer theirs out whilst Martin kindly carried the spares in his backpack.
🏃♀️ Lucy and Jenna jogged east to Tang Hall and also had somewhat mixed luck, more related to some possibly incorrect addresses that had been provided.
📚 Dan and I headed towards York University, where we left lots at the Information Centre (though sadly had less luck at the library). We also stopped at various places on the way there and back.
😁 It stopped raining eventually and we gathered back at CVS, soggy but (impressively) still smiling! And full of ideas of where to distribute the remaining leaflets.
👍 Incredible work everyone, leafletting on a rainy bank holiday evening may not be everyone’s idea of fun so you’re absolute troopers 💪
